Bitcoin to $9.7K?
According to the Coinbase 4H chart above, the bitcoin price has earlier broken down from a Rising Wedge pattern. The ascending channel, wherein two trendlines starts converging into one another, is typically bearish. As so happened, the BTC/USD rate also dropped upon testing a premature apex of the Wedge.
The move downside is now targeting $9,711 as its Wedge breakout target. That is also the pullback level upon testing which bitcoin could retest local highs and – with a weekly bullish bias – could retest its year-to-date high of $13,868.44.
